I have some good news to share as we finish up the week. On Tuesday, the Dugoni School received the Community Excellence Award for Community Engagement from the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District in honor of the many ways we served the neighborhood in 2021. Some of these activities included our clinical services, vaccination efforts, patient emergency care and funding, community outreach, and our public awareness campaign about the importance of oral health.
All of our students, residents, faculty, and staff played a part in making these efforts a success so thank you to each of you. I hope you feel good about your positive impact on the lives of others.
Please learn more in this news story. Also, I had the opportunity to make comments on behalf of the school during a virtual awards presentation you can watch on YouTube below (The school’s section starts at 4:19 and includes pictures of some of our volunteers.)
